The Remarkables shows how every child is extraordionary, through imaginative portraits of the absurd and the fantastical.

Rachel Lawson, Publisher

The Remarkables

Meet 38 extraordinary children: an electric child, a flying child, elastic, invisible, miniature, a child made of cake. Each child describes their characteristics, tells anecdotes, and presents the special powers that make them unique. A “class photo” brings everyone together with a quiz finale for readers to discover their own superpowers.

The Remarkables is a big book of fantasy and humor that entertains and provides a way to talk about emotions and identity. Through Perrin’s unique imagination, this inclusive encyclopedia celebrates individuality, strengths and differences, allowing every reader to explore what miraculous superpower they would wish for—or might have.

Known for her original lift-the-flap explorations of fairytale stories, Perrin here turns the lens onto her child readers, showing each one that they are a superhero.

    1. The Bookseller (UK)

      The author of Inside the Villains paints a loving portrait of the children she has met and what makes them special with this large-format Picture Book about the icy child, the aquatic child and more. Fantastical yet observant (the diamond child doesn’t always find it easy being brilliant, for example) and beautifully illustrated, The Remarkables will appeal to die-hard Perrin fans, as well as families looking for a large-format gift title.

Available worldwide from your local bookstore or online.
